I am a Catholic and agree with the stance that my church has taken regarding Obamacare. Do you feel we are entitled to stand against the elements of this program and have a right to contest the law and the way it is being interpreted?

I'm not a Republican, but, "GETTING RID" of the Obama and Corporate Healthcare, that was written as a Corporate REWARD, and actually rewrite a Bill that's in the People's BEST INTEREST, would be a VERY GOOD STARTING POINT for the American People.

I think our government dances around the problem. Simply put we can't have our cake and eat it too. Eventually we will run out of our own or other peoples money. While reference is made to the free market driving down cost via eye or plastic surgery, the truth of the matter is people have a myriad of maladies that come with a hefty price tag. The root of the problem is greed. I'm not a proponent of the government regulating pricing, in this instance it presents as an option. The nurses union may even agree http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2014/01/07/hospitals-overcharging-patients-nurs

Imagine if an ambassador from another country were killed here in the United States, it would be a world event and every nation would be demanding justice. Why is this not being taken more seriously and when did our national pride and world influence become so unimportant. I hope the hearings next week will uncover what is really going on.

A combo of bad intelligence, poor choice of militia as security, lack of preparation,, lack of resources, lack of military assets in the area (blame Africomm), lack of connection to locals, turnover in state dept., no one taking responsibility for security, and just plain bad luck.

Our founders explicitly stated their belief in limited governance from the federal government. What can be done by the average citizen to honor the intentions of the framers and limit the ever expanding intrusion of government into our daily lives?

I agree with Joe too! It doesn't matter to me who belongs to what party. Sequestration should never have happened. The effects are now putting our nation and citizens in jeopardy with defense cutbacks, air traffic controllers furloughed, and it should have been stopped. The first cuts under Sequestration should have been Capitol Hill residents for allowing it to happen, and they should be "furloughed" permanently with no government pension. MAKE YOUR VOTES COUNT IN THE NEXT ELECTIONS.

Sal, with today's "NEW FORM OF GOVERNMENT", "A Government FOR the Government, CREATED BY the Government Leaders, FOR the Government's Benefits", OWNED AND CONTROLLED by "CORPORATE MONEY" is really going to be HARD to return to a People's Government.
I would STRONGLY SUGGEST a VOTE against ALL incumbent Elected People, and especially those People who are constantly being re-elected by the "GOOD OLE BOY" Votes.
The Government and Corporate Interest's "DID THIS TO AMERICA AND THE CONSTITUTION". Not the People !

HHS has given qualified approval for a Medicare provider to give away $20 grocery gift cards to try to lure seniors to take more medical exams at Medicare's expense. Do you think this is a good policy, using gifts to encourage Americans to spend more tax dollars?

It is the measure of infantilism that we have to encourage people to do some thing that is good for them with bribery. As children, our parents did exactly that. As adults we should be held responsible for our own actions.

The tax dollars of people who are PRO- LIFE should NOT be spent on Government funded abortion or birth control.
New tax forms should be printed , giving people an OPTION to support or NOT. EXAMPLE:
I wish to donate ______________________ of my tax refund to: ( check below )
Abortion
Birth Control
pottery Classes in Morocco
Sex organs of ducks
Muslim Brotherhood
Presidental vacations
First lady vacations
Congressional Haircare
PRO- LIFE support groups

Maybe we should look to the FDA as a culprit for the mental deficiencies! Does anyone know the amount of school aged children on medications that the schools push on parents, ie: ad/hd, hyper activity, inability to focus, comprehension levels! I was astounded that I was threatened if I did not conform to what the school suggested even after the doctor said " there is nothing wrong with this boy, he is a boy." The amount of children's parents being guilted and scared by the schools is a travesty and I feel a leading factor in the situations we will be facing for generations to come.

The most fundamental duty of Congress is to make laws that must be coherent in the role of the United States and must promote the execution of the Constitution. All American citizens have a right to DEMAND accountability of Congress. Whether it's overspending, spending money for the wrong reasons, or making frivolous laws, we have a duty to express our displeasure and question our local representatives that we elected to work for us to better our country and communities.

The best way the Public can have input is at election time...Washington may not want public input to hear our voices, but public input of not re-electing them back for another term in office will speak volumes and WAY louder than words anyway.

Yes but the only way I see to stop this progression to socialism is to hold Members of Congress to a Constitutional standard and keep as much of government out of all of our personal lives.
